Originally scheduled to release in 2015, then pushed to February 9, 2016, Mighty No. 9, the spiritual successor to Mega Man by developer Keiji Inafune, has been delayed yet again.

The announcement came from the video game’s Kickstarter page which mentions the title is now scheduled to release in Spring 2016.

According to the Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter page, Keiji Inafune states the following regarding the source of the problem and why the title has been delayed:

The reason for the delay is rooted in bugs inside the network modes, and specifically problems with matchmaking. There are two large reasons for this problem, one of them being the large number of platforms supported (the solution for each platform is slightly different) and the other stems from the fact that the engine we are using is no longer being updated which means adjustments for matchmaking and online code are being made manually (actually reprogramming parts of the engine by the dev team themselves).

Because we are constantly working on it in cooperation with all our partners, we want to wait and make sure that everything is confirmed to be ready before giving a new specific release date. But we expect it to realistically be in Spring 2016.”

Mighty No. 9 is scheduled to launch on a variety of current and last-gen consoles.
